Call of Duty: Ghosts Offers Bonus Map With Pre-Orders

Free Fall

Activision has announced a new bonus map called “Free Fall will be available to those who pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts. “Free Fall” features a new dynamic map mechanic where the environment changes as you play.

According to the press release “Free Fall drops players into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse. Sideways staircases climb into the night sky, elevator shafts run along the ground, and what were once windows now form a terrifying glass floor, hundreds of feet above the city streets. Free Fall’s close-quarters combat and frenetic action are then thrown into overdrive as the ruined skyscraper continues to fall throughout the match. With every drop, the accompanying shockwaves cause further destruction, disrupting sightlines and constantly evolving paths and chokepoints as the map changes in real-time.”

Mark Rubin, executive producer at Infinity Ward, states “As the match progresses, the geometry of the world continues to change and players need to adjust on the fly or else.”

It sounds like Call of Duty is taking a page out of the Battlefield playbook. Although, Free Fall is definitely a step in the right direction, I’m sure the gaming community will find a reason to complain about it.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to launch for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on November 5. Meanwhile, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will will follow later this year.
